Easiest way to get a price while you starting out is to multiple the cost of your mats times 3. That seems to be a standard multiplier for when people are buying direct from you.

I bet that took forever. I just made earrings for the first time putting individual beads like that on a chain. It took me forever just to do one earring! I can't imagine how long it would take to do those. But they turned out very well. I love them!

I'm a crafty kid. I just can't help myself.

Wow! That must have taken you forever.

When it comes to pricing, make sure you take into account the amount of time you spent+materials.

The End.

Just looking at it and pretending that I don't know how long it took you or how much the beads & wire cost, I think you could get away ith between $40.00 to $50.00 for the necklace and at least $20-25 for the earrings (I'm in Canada BTW)....

Depending on where you're selling it you could definitely get more, but I wouldn't charge less - you're time is valuable!

Just remember to be fair to yourself. It's a lot of time and effort to make these things (trip to the bead store, time selecting what colours will go with what, how you're going to put it together, then the materials and the time to assemble)....

They're lovely pieces. I really like the colours you chose.

I love the drapy effect of the beads, and the colors are very autumn. I love how it looks so simple on first glance, but are more complex in completion than first thought. I'm not very patient at all so I'd screw up. But you did a beautiful job!
